For those in US universities, if you have students reaching out and asking how they can help, please see this initiative to help Israeli startups:
Looking for American students willing to help Israeli startups whose employees have been called into reserve military duty:
For nearly half a century, Israel has been a beacon of technological innovation, its contributions touching our lives in countless ways. Yet, with the recent war, numerous Israelis in the tech industry have been called to the reserves, temporarily leaving their startups and projects.
In light of this, Etai Geller, Josh Miller, and I are thrilled to unveil American American Students for Israeli Start-Ups (AS4ISU). This initiative is geared towards extending a supportive hand to these innovators by forging meaningful connections between dedicated American students and professionals, and Israeli tech entrepreneurs for pro bono support.
In just 72 hours:
We’ve gathered over 200 US-based students, ready to offer their skills in areas like finance, operations, marketing, and development to Israeli startups that need a helping hand.
Join Us in This Endeavor:
If you’re associated with an Israeli tech startup, a venture capitalist, or know someone requiring support during these times, please fill out this form: https://lnkd.in/g62duANj
American students or professionals eager to contribute, we welcome your commitment and skills. Please fill out this form: https://lnkd.in/g4T3v7Jn
Together, let’s ensure that the spirit of Israeli tech innovation remains strong and undiminished. Looking forward to witnessing another century of Israeli technological excellence!
Due to the ongoing conflict in Israel, many startup and tech professionals have been called to serve in the army reserves. This form aims to match American college students willing to help with Israeli startups in need of workforce support. By lending your skills and time, you’ll help ensure the continuity of these ventures during challenging times, while gaining valuable hands-on experience. Your involvement will foster a stronger bond between the American and Israeli communities, making a meaningful impact in the face of adversity.
